Monolaurin™ is an antimicrobial agent that protects the immune system from a range of infectious agents. Monolaurin is a glyceride ester derivative of lauric acid, a fatty acid found naturally in breast milk and certain vegetable oils. This fatty acid has been used as a germicidal agent for centuries. Lauric acid was originally discovered when microbiologists studied human breast milk to determine the antiviral substances which protected infants from microbial infections. It has been shown to help protect newborns, whose immune systems are underdeveloped, from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and other respiratory tract viruses. Monolaurin was found to have even greater viral activity than lauric acid. As a dietary supplement, monolaurin has shown exciting results as an antiviral and antibacterial agent.

Monolaurin serves as a valuable nutritional adjunct for people who feel that they are coming down with a cold or flu. Many physicians have developed their own clinical protocols in their cold and flu prevention program and recommend taking several capsules of monolaurin on an empty stomach. Monolaurin is not the type of nutritional supplement you have to take on a daily basis (although many people take it regularly for prevention purposes), but only when the need arises. If you have a fever or swollen lymph glands, it is always best to see a physician, but if you sense the early warning signs of the flu, like sniffles, sore skin and perhaps a scratchy throat, monolaurin could offer the first line of defense.
